How is DA disrupting the management of fixed asset registers?

CADA combines sophisticated data analytics software with explorative testing to uncover potential compliance risks and financial opportunities. Coupled with the vast experience of KPMG’s tax professionals, CADA could help make ATO reviews more efficient and cost effective, and can uncover potential tax savings.

KPMG’s CADA is designed to make this simple.

Questions to ask about your fixed asset register

  • What confidence do I have that my tax fixed asset register (FAR) is accurate?
  • Are there cash benefits trapped in my tax FAR?
  • Is my tax FAR reconciled to my accounting FAR?
  • How does my tax FAR benchmark within my organisation, amongst industry peers and the broader corporate environment?

CADA helps you to:

  • Immediate deduction: To determine if any assets can be fully depreciated at 100 percent.
  • Nil depreciation rate: To isolate any assets that are not being depreciated.
  • Nil Closing Written Down Value: To isolate assets that are fully depreciated and can be removed from the tax fixed asset register.
  • Capital works: To determine assets that are subject to capital works to identify opportunities to move to depreciating assets, such as fit-outs.
